Ed Harris of course! Harris was a friend of J.J. Audubon during the early 
1800s.  Audubon valued close friendships and often honored those friendships by 
naming a bird after that person. In 1837 the Harris’s Hawk, illustrated by 
Audubon, was introduced to the world with the publication of Birds of North 
America.
Harris’s Hawk is locally found throughout the  Americas and utilizes one of the 
most sophisticated cooperative hunting techniques known to birds. The Hawk is a 
favorite amongst falconers because of its skills in hunting varied assortment 
of prey as well as its ease in trainability.
